Elemental abundances in AGB stars and the formation of the Galactic bulge

Uttenthaler, S; Blommaert, J A D L; Lebzelter, Thomas; Ryde, N; Wood, Peter R; Schultheis, M; Aringer, B


We obtained high-resolution near-IR spectra of 45 AGB stars located in the Galactic bulge. The aim of the project is to determine key elemental abundances in these stars to help constrain the formation history of the bulge. A further aim is to link the photospheric abundances to the dust species found in the winds of the stars. Here we present a progress report of the analysis of the spectra.
